Subject: Re: Fw: A little wish list for the blind

Hi Nicolas,
Yes, we pretty much remember the order of our folders.
e.g., mine is set up like this:
50's 60's 70's 80's 90's+ Assorted Classical Comedy
So I arrow to the folder and enter it and I start playing.
Play lists seem like they are not feasible for us right now.
But perhaps with knowing the order of the play lists after pressing a
certain F-key, they might work.

As far as getting the menus to talk,
Using the MP3 sounds might be okay, but there is a time lag in the MP3
sounds that might be frustrating enough, that we would not want our menus to
use MP3 files as opposed to synthetic speech.

Hi !
First of all, sorry if I'm rude, I'm french and I don't know if it is
"politicaly correct" or even polite to speek to blind people like I'm about
to do. No offense :)

I just wonder how you, blind users, manage to navigate thru the hard drive
directory of the box.
Is it "just" because you know where is everything ? I'm pretty organized
myself, but since hard drive activity can disturb the navigation, I'm lost
if I can't see the screen...
